Approaching the Kalachakra Generation Stage

In this three-day practice retreat, you will be introduced to the profound practices of the Kalachakra generation stage through a series of sadhanas written by the Omniscient One, Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen. When used together, these sadhanas provide a gradual method for building up the complexity of your visualisation and familiarising yourself with the Kalachakra Mandala in a clear and approachable way. Working from the most essential aspects outward, practitioners will learn how to establish the visualisations, how to recite the various mantras and also how to perform the different mudras used in the rituals.


4.542€ of 3.000€ raised

In order to make this offering to the community, we request the financial support of sponsors who are willing to contribute to the costs of providing food and board for up to 30 participants. To reach this goal, we estimate we will need to raise a total amount of 3000 €. This corresponds to approximately 100 € per person for the full duration of the teachings (4 nights stay in dorms with full-board).

Our generosity-based model depends on your support to create the conditions for us to hold events and offer them freely to others. Any donations that we receive above the requested sponsorship goal will be donated to the Suchandra Annual Fund as support for future events, community projects and general organizational costs. Like this, we encourage you to give whatever you can so that we can continue to make the Dharma accessible to all.

As a way to show our appreciation to the teacher for offering his time and energy to share the profound Dharma with us, there will be an opportunity at the end of the retreat for individuals to practice generosity and express their gratitude in the form of a personal financial offering. You can also contribute to his work by making an online donation here:

Ordained Sangha Fund

Our ordained sangha members serve the community by guiding practice groups, leading our volunteer staff and supporting the spiritual development of our members. With your generosity, we will be able to provide for all of the necessary costs such as food, shelter, health insurance, social insurance and other recurring monthly expenses.

It is our aspiration to be able to fully support one ordained sangha member for the next year. We estimate that we will need 12000€ to achieve this aim. If you are able to give, please support this fund.

These teachings are offered freely to all those who sincerely wish to practice Kalachakra and who have received a Unsurpassed Yoga Tantra Empowerment from a qualified Vajra Master such as HH the Dalai Lama or HE Khentrul Rinpoché.


For those who are unable to attend the event in person, we will be offering a live video stream of the event. However, in order for this stream to be created, we still need to raise enough money to reach our sponsorship goal and actually hold the event. Therefore, even if you will not be joining us in person, please contribute to the sponsorship above so that we can be sure the event will manifest.


Spaces at the retreat centre are limited and will therefore be awarded in chronological order of registration. Any additional registrations received above our maximum capacity will be placed on a wait list. Out of respect for other people who wish to participate, if you register and then are unable to attend, please notify us as soon as possible so that we can give your space to the next person on the list. Failure to give proper notice and not showing up to the event will affect your ability to participate in future events. Please be considerate to others who wish to attend.

All participants, whether in person or online must register below to indicate that they will be attending. Those registered for the online teachings will be sent further information and links via email as we approach the date of the event.
